general's we have all heard of from general marshall to general westmoreland but also those we haven't heard of and historians i think need to be recaptured. i'd like to go ahead and start right in in the middle if you will, tom. let's talk a little bit about your most provocative pieces, which is that oil down to in essence there's just not in a firing going on in the u.s. military since the end of world war ii. >> i will tze yes, there are is not enough firing going on but the book is not simply for firing more general's. it is a brief for accountability. if you hold people accountable for success and failure, you incentivize success in the military and i think we have lost that. there's a real tolerance for media be. as colonel paul yang ling famously said about the iraq war, a private uses his rifle -- [inaudible] and the book is a cry for restoring some of that accountability the george marshall used in world war ii that marshall gave generals about 90 days to two months to either succeed, get killed or be replaced. and that is why today people like fred and bald have been forgott

imagine running a war that way. can you imagine marshall saying to eisenhower january 44, a company that 18 months, time for some else to have a term. marshall and eisenhower made a lot of decisions in 42. they need to make mistakes and learn from them. eisenhower at one point in africa thought he might be relieved. he sent a letter to his son single, that's the nature of the business, don't worry about it. we will all go on. >> that's one of the critiques i've seen about your prescription to the book is a question of if rix wants us to fire more generals does that mean doesn't tolerate mistakes? by turner to suggest even our greatest leaders made plenty of mistakes on the personal front as well as -- >> you had 155 men elected to be division commanders in combat in the army in world war ii. many hurdles before that. marshall cleaned up 600 senior officers before the war began. officers he considered dead weight. that's the phrase used to frankfurter when frankfurter was talking to him. of the 155 men who commanded divisions in combat in the army in world war ii, 15 were fired. sorr

proud of. our own dr. marshall, who is the president of the mega boys club and is on our commission will have to leave early to catch a flight tomorrow. he's been summoned to the white house to be part of a panel dealing with gun violence. he just found out about that. so if he's a little late, he's working on the arrangements. that's an incredible honor for one of our police commissioners. he ran a gun buy back program and we had a great conversation today about gun violence. he will share those thoughts with the vice president. so we're very honored and proud. when he gets here, a little round of applause. without further ado, call line item 1. >> the clerk: presentation of certificates of appreciation, action. mr. halloway, and officers matthew cloud and stephen gritsch. >> thank you, mr. president, commissioners, chief biel, mr. hicks, happy new year. tonight, i'm not going to be wearing my poa hat outside of congratulating two of our members who will receive an award later on. i'm wearing my arson task force hat. i'm assigned to the arson task force for the san francisco police
Jan 7, 2013 12:00pm PST] >> as you all know, the german marshall fund vehicle very kind to provide us with this -- has been very kind to provided us with this opportunity to have four of their european experts in bicycle planning, bicycle implementation and bicycle programs and they are experts on all aspects of the bicycle. and here in san francisco, you know, we are at this point trying to after a hiatus of three years because of court-ordered injunctions trying to implement our bike plan. so we all a collective goal, i believe, to increase the environmental and nick sustainability of the world around us that we participate in and especially in san francisco, but we do have a special responsibility because this place provides us with the opportunity that most other places don't. the geometry and geography of san francisco is up that it is easier for us being in a city of short trips to veil ourselves to other alternatives to the car. so when we want to reclaim the street and the public right-of-way and the public realm for people and basic human needs of access to the humanities that urban en

marshall. integrating this into the public school curriculum, prevention, what is appropriate behavior, junior high dating, what are the boundaries for young women to set. behavioral models for young men. one thing i wanted to do more about is economic empowerment for women. as you can realize, the department has a small staff. at one time there were as many as 8-10 staff members. now we have 4.5 we sort of move our agenda as is necessary. the prevention -- intervention particularly -- is important to us particularly empowering women. it is even more difficult when there are financial issues and be able to be gainfully employed. >> this is not a criticism. i don't think - ideal of the same thing with the kids - i am saying, any opportunity that you hear about things progressing? when i talk to kids in school, is it really working? i want to leave it for me since i've had some success with young people i would be willing to offer to help in that area because like i said i don't like the in result. that so they want to stop. >> >> if anybody has a right to ask a question, that's dr. joe

the work you're doing and work with us and don't lose that concern for the community. dr. marshall. >> well, let me begin by saying i'm not a fan of drug users at all, at all, at all, and i don't think anybody who knows me knows that. a lot of pain, a lot of heartache and i really don't take any excuse. with that being said this report seems to say -- the questions being raised that there were more arrests of african-americans for drug sales as compared to other jurisdictions. it's a legitimate question to ask why. i think the next step -- it's a little clouded to me by the data collection thing anyway because it seems like we have data issues we have been wrestling with. with that notwithstanding the immediate thing to do see if the same disparities still exist. i think that would certainly be the next step, and then you could -- well, yeah. i think that's the main thing. if you get the numbers for the last four years would they be in fact similar or the same? i'm very familiar with michelle alexander and the book and i don't know there is not a tenderloin in every city and probab

marshall: if i read this correctly, based on your i guess research and the answers it says here the department is recommending, is that correct? >> yes. >> vice president marshall: that's what it says here. okay. >> so if there aren't further questions for the sergeant i wanted to ask if the applicant, mr. romero could come up and ask your permission to ask you these questions and of course you can say no. >>7ljç yes, the applicant does t have to disclose this information publicly, as we've discussedjpp÷ before, the application file and the background information in it is confidential. and that's not -- the record but it's the content of the information. so that's why we had gone to this paper follow-up process. i'm a little concerned. we've already talked about some of the information that's in the file, which the record is confidential. and that information is confidential as well. so it's up to the applicant to decide, if he's willing to share some of this. but if he doesn't want to i think we should continue with the written process so those records and that information can be

>> >> if anybody has a right to ask a question, that's dr. joe marshall. i am very dedicated and certainly this commission is very dedicated to doing the prevention work and we do need to have a broader conversation about that. i think that as we started out with the discussion, executive director dr. -- indicated that this year so far we have had 0, we have so many days left in this calendar year, talking calendar year not fiscal year. we have had zero homicides as a result of domestic violence. that is really something to take note of. i don't think that that has occurred by happenstance; it is not a statistical anomaly. i think it is because we are gearing our work more as preventative. preventative - the collaborative effort that we are working with, the various departments, the police department, the various partner agencies is in and of itself becoming more defined preventative. a lot we heard this evening is interventive; as we go forward the fruits of that labor become more definitively preventative. nonetheless i think that you are absolutely correct and that is correct

police department as well as our community partner the omega boys club headed by dr. joe marshall and one of the most successful gun buy back programs. we collected approximately 2 96 guns off the street, 300 we were able to get guns off of out of hands of folks. not just in the southeast neighborhood, but all across san francisco. and i think we have a collective understanding that there is a growing awareness on the part of san franciscans about the need to do more to address gun violence and to believe -- and i believe that there is a desire for us as elected officials to take greater steps in implementing institutional solutions to these issues. * these weapons and this ammunition over here to my right don't belong in the hands of san francisco and online suppliers, online suppliers have an obligation to disclose to law enforcement officers information about residents buying large amounts of this lethal ammunition. i just want to say thank you for being here. i look forward to introducing this legislation. as soon as we hit the ground running in january. i appreciate your supp
